Tailored Implants Made of PVDF

Innovation contest of medical technology 2007

By an internationally filled jury of experts the project “Visualisation of textile implants in MRI by inclusion of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles” was chosen and awarded within the innovation contest of medical technology 2007 arranged by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
In the next three years and in co-operation with the University Hospital Aachen and the Helmholtz Institute for Biomedical Technology, FEG Textiltechnik mbH is going to develop a mesh implant to make body reactions on the implant visible in MRI. This will contribute to an improved patient surveillance.
